As Sudan Archives, Brittney Parks has combined left-field strains of R&B, hip-hop, andexperimental electronic music with hypnotic string loops and the fiddling style of WestAfrica, as heard on a pair of EPs and her debutfull-length, Athena (2019). Shemasterfully bridged the gap between her early glitchy, avant-garde compositions andtimeless songwriting on the “stunning, reflective” (Pitchfork) Athena, and returned in2022 with two new songs (Home Maker, Selfish Soul).The self-taught violinist, singer,songwriter, and producer started playing violin in her native Cincinnati, Ohio. After Parksmoved to Los Angeles to study music technology, she started producing beats on atablet computer with the addition of her vocals and strings, the latter increasinglyinspired by immersion in Sudanese music. For her first LP (Athena), she took acollaborative approach and worked with a group of fellow producers who included PaulWhite, Rodaidh McDonald, and Wilma Archer after self-producing her first two EP’s.

“A swaggering statement of intent with all the idiosyncratic charm that makes her musicso memorable”– Pitchfork (Best New Track, 2022)

“The US singer and violinist’s debut album contains some of the most viscerallygorgeous music put to record this year”– The Guardian

“Athena is … a record of truebeauty and resilience.”– CRACK
